A more random and obscure part of Ibex, the South Corridor has a small variety of crags within a 10 to 20 minute approach. Like most of the areas, traditional and sport lines exist in the corridor. A 60 meter rope will suffice along with a single set of cams, and 8 to 10 draws.

Protected by the wind and fairly exposed, you can find solace on cold bitter days. Crags here include the Scorpion Slab, Holey Moley, the Birth Canal and New Year's Rock.

Getting There 

This cluster of random crags are located between the Corral Crags and Snakeskin Buttress.

A nice, free-flowing sport line up the backside of the Holey Moley Wall. Begin by laying off a wavering, thick crack feature and follow the steep line of bolts towards the route's crux at a bulge. Finish the line using a few solid flakes and deep edges. A mild run-out up a trough ends the line at a two bolt chain anchor. A fine line with a fair amount of pump! A great warm-up for the other routes at the wall. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
